51 Internet of Things Applications in Real Life

The Internet of Things can be used in several different aspects of life, in both the public and private sectors.

Thanks to the Internet of Things, individuals can track things like appliance maintenance schedules, their house’s security systems, or lost pets.

Consumers or customers can use the Internet of Things for helping them receive coupons for a store, monitor their exercise progress and overall health, and make restaurant reservations, only by virtue of walking by the business that we are talking about.

Businesses and companies can use the Internet of Things for monitoring supply chains, tracking consumers’ or customers’ spending habits as well collecting their feedback, monitoring and maintaining inventory levels, and engaging in predictive maintenance of their devices, systems, and machines.

The Internet of Things also proves helpful in ITIL, which is a set of Information Technology service management, an important detail, since InformationTechnology departments are called on to do more and more in a globe that is getting increasingly digital, with more and more reliance on wireless networks.

Blockchain, which is being increasingly used as a more secure and efficient method of data processing and transaction, is a natural beneficiary of Internet of Things technology.

All us should expect to see the Internet of Things and Blockchain coming together more often in the future.

But how do different companies and industries apply the IoT or the Internet of Things for making things more efficient?

The ubiquity of the IoT (Internet of Things) is a fact of life thanks to its adoption by a broad range of companies and industries.

Internet of Thing’s versatility makes it an attractive option for so many government branches, organizations, and businesses, that it does not make sense to ignore it.

Here’s a sample of several applications and industries, and how the Internet of Things can be best applied.

1 Internet of Things Applications in Wearables

Wearable technology is probably is one of the earliest applications and industries to have deployed the Internet of Things at its service and is a hallmark of Internet of Things applications.

We happen to see smart watches, heart rate monitors, and Fit Bits everywhere these days.

Guardian glucose monitoring device is one of the lesser-known wearables.

This device is created and developed for aiding individuals who are suffering from diabetes.

It relays the information via Radio Frequency to a monitoring device, and it helps detect glucose levels in the body of a person, by using a tiny electrode called a glucose sensor placed under the skin.

Fitness bands and virtual glasses for monitoring for example heart beats or calorie expenditure, or GPS tracking belts, are just a few examples/ instances of wearable devices which we have been using for some time now.

Big tech giants, brands and companies such as Samsung, Apple, Google, and others have introduced and developed the Internet of Things and its applications thereof into our daily lives.

These are energy-efficient and small systems, which are equipped with sensors. With software, the necessary hardware for measurements and readings can be used for collecting and organizing information and data about customers and users.

2 Internet of Things Applications in Smart Home Applications

The other use is the integration of Internet of Things technology into hospital beds.

It provides a way to smart beds, that are equipped with special sensors for observing  important and vital signs, body temperature, oximeter and blood pressure.

4 Internet of Things Applications in Smart Cities

I have assumed here that most of you must have heard about the term Smart City.

One of the many aspects that constitute a smart city is the hypothesis of the optimized traffic system.

Know More: What is a smart city ?

The thing about theconcept of smart cities is that it is very specific to a city.

The problems faced in Delhi are very different than those in Mumbai. The problems in New York are different from Shanghai.

Even global issues, such as increasing urban density, deteriorating quality of air, and finite clean drinking water, occur in different intensities across cities and they affect each city differently.

The engineers and the Government can use Internet of Things for analyzing the often-complex factors of town planning specific to each city.

The use of Internet of Things applications can aid in areas like emergencies,  waste control, and water management.

Now, let’s take an actual example of Palo Alto- a Smart City.

Palo Alto in San Francisco is the 1stcity of its type, which took a whole new approach towards traffic.

They realized, the main reason for traffic congestion in the city – most  cars on the streets go round and around the same block, in search of parking spots.

Thus,at all the parking spots around the city, sensors were installed.

Any no of applications can consume that information and data and these sensors pass the occupancy status of each spot to the cloud.

It can also help guide the drivers through the smallest and the shortest route to an open spot.

This solution/ answer here involves the use and application of sensor arrays feeding back to a point that, aggregates the information and data and uses it for several purposes.

5 Applications of IoT in Agriculture

Statistics estimate the ever-growing world/ globe population of people will reach nearly ten billion by the year two thousand and fifty.

To feed such a big population one needs to marry technology to agriculture and obtain the best results.

There are so many possibilities in this field and one of them is the Smart Greenhouse.

A greenhouse farming technique allows or enhances the yield of crops by controlling several environmental parameters.

However, manual handling results in labor cost, energy loss, and production, making the process less effective.

A greenhouse with embedded systems and devices not only makes it easier to be monitored but also, allows us in controlling the climate inside it.

Sensors measure various parameters according to the plant requirement and then send them to the cloud.

It, then, applies a control action and processes the data and information.

Smart farms are a fact and the quality of soil is crucial to produce good crops.

The IoT(Internet of Things) offers farmers the possibility to access detailed valuable data and information, knowledge of their soil condition.

Through the implementation of Internet of Things sensors, a significant and big amount of data and information can be obtained on the states and stages of the soil.
